    Can you rephrase your question to not use twitter bootstrap web 3.0 jargon? What do you mean by bootstrapping underscores? bootstrap and udnerscore are separate frameworks, it's not clear what you want – Tom J Nowell Jan 19 '13 at 23:52
  • Booststrap is a CSS framework and Underscores theme is starter theme with ultra-minimal CSS. I edit question, i hope you like new version – Ünsal Korkmaz Jan 20 '13 at 1:07
  • If your question is what i think it is then it's purely a html/CSS question, not a WP question and so the bootstrap docs have your answer and this question is offtopic – Tom J Nowell Jan 20 '13 at 17:04
  • That and underscores is a starter theme, not a theme of itself, you're supposed to modify it – Tom J Nowell Jan 20 '13 at 17:04

    A recent guide to this is available online. It's a little strangely worded, but you should be able to follow along anyway kungfunguyen.com/… – user37619 Sep 5 '13 at 0:40

This plugin should do the trick: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-bootstrap-css/

It simply packages up boostrap's CSS and JS and inserts it in you theme (as long as the theme provides the right hooks to wordpress).

The following is a tutorial based on underscore: WordPress Themes Templates Tutorial

It can easily be modified to work with Bootstrap. The only thing you have to pay attention to is the new column classes in Bootstrap 3 and not adding the tutorials CSSS near the end.

I created a theme the goal of integrating Twitter's bootstrap into Automattic's underscores with the smallest possible changeset.
I'm keeping it up to date rather frequently with both _s and Bootstrap. Here is the link:

At the time of writing, it's underscores' most popular fork
